Great 'deco' style mirror Vicci!
We all have so much to be thankful for. It is the simplest things that give me pleasure, and that I am most grateful for. Like yesterday afternoon, when I picked baby 'O'(Blue Spa Girl's Daughter)up from school, and she sat in back of the van and described to me the best sunset she had ever seen. She is 6! The things money can't buy, but stay with you forever. Your list was great, very original. Have a great weekend! xo

Ah it is really a pleasure to meet one who appreciates the many blessings in life!
"When you're an open door that's never closed to possibilities, you'll be totally receptive to the abundance that's always ceacelessly flowing."..that's what sits on my desk as I type! :)

This was a lovely list of things Vicci, I must learn to "recognize" more, it always seems I am waiting for the other shoe to drop and therefore miss out on the more wonderful things right around me. You are an inspiration!
